On Tuesday 24 July, Ulverston and Lakes Policing Team, together with Cumbria Fire and Rescue and Sports Clubs which are based in and around Ambleside are running a sports taster day, ‘Sport for All’ at Rothay Park, Ambleside.
The day starts at 11am and runs to 4pm and will provide free, fun opportunities for young people from the communities of South Lakeland to try a variety of sporting activities including Cricket, Rugby, Hockey, Football, Climbing Wall, and activities for young children..
Sgt Ken Jewell said: “Sports club members are providing all the sporting equipment we will need during the day and are giving up their time to help young people try out new activities which they might not have tried before.
“It should be a great day and we hope that those aged 16 or under from the local area will come along and have a go. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never played sport before – you just need to be willing to have a go!
“A circus skills workshop, dance class, climbing wall and a bouncy castle are also going to be provided so there really should be something for everybody. Police officers, Fire officers and PCSOs will be on the field throughout the day to supervise but younger children will need to be accompanied by an adult.
“The day promises to be great fun and will provide local people with a chance to come and enjoy a free event and meet members of their emergency services. Anyone who is aged 16 years or under and wants to have a go is welcome to come to Rothay Park with their sports kit and trainers. We hope to see you there!”
